October is over and so is Quote Me. Phew, what an ordeal. There were three categories of quotes General, Wit/Humor, and Romance/Swoon. Almost sixty books entered quotes and it was a long battle with several casualties and broken egos.
The winner from Wit/Humor is. . .
The winner from Romance/Swoon is. . .
The winner from General is. . .
These three winners were then pitted against each other for quote supremacy.
King of Quotedom 2012 is. . .
- Warren - Destroy Me
- Aaron or Mayor Prentiss - Knife of Never Letting Go
- Darkling - Shadow and Bone
- Jackal - The Immortal Rules
- The Alchemist - Poison Princess
- The Queen - The Pledge
- Dalliah Grey - Blackwatch
- High Lord Sethon - Eona
- Valentine - City of Glass
- Jack - Hourglass
I am glad it is over. There were some great moments. I met some awesome people. But the amount of work was intense. I don't think I would ever consider doing this again without a partner or two. It just isn't sustainable. But if I find partners and do this again I hope to have others supply the quotes so they aren't all my favorites. It would sure make voting easier on myself.
The contest didn't turn out as I thought it would. Had I been the only one voting an entirely different quote would have won. I am still surprised by the winner. I was sure that Reaper would win since it had the highest turn out for voting. But in the end it just didn't make it.
So did you see this winner coming? If not which book or quote did you think would win?
Here is the part you are likely waiting for.
